Abstract : The present invention is a particle source that produces protons by thermally dissociating gas molecules such as hydrogen prior to electronic bombardment ionization thereby increasing the efficiency of proton production. The hydrogen or other gas is fed to a chamber formed by an enclosed anode except for an orifice allowing for the output beam. A tungsten filament passes through the chamber and the entire chamber is mounted on a disk with stainless steel support posts.
